March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Colorectal cancer screening saves lives

Colorectal cancer is the second deadliest cancer in the United States. Yet it's one of the few cancers that's preventable thanks to screening. Here are two reasons why getting checked matters:

  • Screening can find the warning signs of colon and rectal cancer, letting doctors take action to prevent the disease.
  • Screening can also find colorectal cancer early, when treatment is most effective.

One in 24 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in their lifetime, but you can make a difference today.
